No Fashion, please!
Fotografie zwischen Gender und Lifestyle | Photography between Gender and Lifestyle
No fashion, please! – the rejection of traditional ideas of fashion and beauty characterizes the nineteen presentations which outline the contemporary international photography scene that explores the fundamental relationship between bodies and clothes, the dialectics between the form of the body and its appearance. The artists are rooted in the tradition of body art and rely on references to installations, ceremonies, and rituals. Borders to other disciplines are crossed in both daring and reckless experiments.
The media strategies employed are manifold and span from staged photographic images, projections, and performances to body sculptures, video and film works. Artists: Chan-Hyo Bae, Tracey Baran, Jeff Bark, Leigh Bowery/ Fergus Greer, Steven Cohen/Marianne Greber, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Matthias Herrmann, Lea Golda Holterman, Izima Kaoru, Luigi & Luca, Sandra Mann, Martin & The evil eyes of Nur, Brigitte Niedermair, Erwin Olaf, Alex Prager, Hanna Putz, Viviane Sassen, Sophia Wallace, Bruce Weber.
